A heart-stopping psychologist thriller, this Academy Award-winning film is one of the best horror movies ever Adapted from a Stephen King novel by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman (All The Presidents Men) and directed by Rob Reiner (A Few Good Men), this chiller starring Kathy Bates (Titanic) and James Caan (The Godfather) is a Hitchcockian kind of cat-and-mouse game played between two cunning minds... one as sharp as a tack and the other as blunt as a sledgehammer. Novelist Paul Sheldon (Canne) doesn't remember the blinding blizzard that sent his car spinning off the road. Nor does he remember being nursed back from unconsciousness. All he remembers is waking up in the home of Annie Wilkes (Bates)... a maniacal fan who is bent on keeping her favourite writer as her personal prisoner... for the rest of his 'coc-a-doodie' life!
The Dark Half:
Horror writer Thad Beaumont hopes to distance himself from his murder novels and from George Stark, the pseudonymous name he has used to author them. To achieve this, he cooks up a murder of his own: a publicity stunt that should lay Stark to rest forever. But when the people around him are found gruesomely slain - and his own fingerprints dot the crime scenes - Beaumont is dumbfounded until he learns that Stark has taken on a life of his own...and begun a gruesome quest for vengeance.
From the best seller novel by Stephen King comes Director Brian De Palma's terrifyingly lyrical thriller that catches the mind, shakes it and refuses to let it go! At the centre of the terror is Carrie (Spacek), a tortured high school misfit with no confidence, no friends...and no idea about the extent of her 'secret powers' of telekinesis. But with her psychotic mother and sadistic classmates finally go too far, the once-shy teen becomes an unrestrained, vengeance-seeking powerhouse who, with the help of her 'special gift', causes all hell to break loose in a framed cinematic frenzy of blood, fire and brimstone that will take you to the very depths of horror - and beyond!
